Anyone else gotten the upgrade yet???
I got it and it's horrible. I guess they want me to put my issues with the previous version into perspective, because this is a whole new world of suck.
I hate that I can't access the menu after a recorded show ends. You have to either delete, save, or restart. I would prefer to go to the menu since if I just save it and I have two shows recording, I am now forced to watch one of the two shows in progress and potentially see some spoilers. So, now I have to choose to restart just so I can access the menu.
They added a 4x fast forward option, which is fine.
But, yeah, it is buggy as hell. I've already seen it recording shows without the red REC indicator on the display. Tonight, it seeemed like it was recording Fringe since it listed it in the list from 9-10 even though it didn't say it was recording. Well, it turns out it wasn't. Not that that hasn't happened before.
Just had to do a reboot while trying to watch Fringe on the other DVR since it seemed to continually have some kind of drop out on and off....
They better have a Plan B. So far, this is the worst update yet.
